The Couple Who Lives in The “Tipi” A-frame

This is our small house near the city of Leuven in Belgium, we call it ‘The Tipi’. We built it temporarily, until we save enough money to built our definitive house… The city allows us to live like this for 5 years. We would recommend this to everyone.” – Inne Van Engeland via Small House Bliss.

Riverwood Chalet – A-Frame on the Middle Fork of the New River

Located in Blowing Rock, NC, these homes were constructed in the 70’s as a vacation rental community. Development ended after seven were built, and henceforth known as the Roaring River Chalets, these classic A-Frames sit along the Middle Fork of the New River. Converted to a Planned Urban Development in 2011, units have been renovated and each sold to private owners. We purchased our end unit in February, 2012 as a second home – fulfilling a longtime dream for a mountain retreat.” – Riverwood Chalet

500 Square Foot A-frame in Washington

Built in 1972, the steeply pitched A-frame is located in Granite Falls, Washington, northeast of Everett. There’s one bedroom, one bath, electric water heater, and free-standing wood stove. Canyon Creek is just a couple hundred yards away, and the Boulder River Wilderness and Mt. Pilchuck State Park are barely two miles as the crow flies.” – Steve Casimiro
